Are you addicted to sex

Passionate couple

The Symptoms of Sexual Addiction:

While there is no official diagnosis for sex addiction, clinicians and researchers have attempted to define the disorder using criteria based on chemical dependency literature. They include:

  • Frequently engaging in more sex and with more partners than intended.
  • Being preoccupied with or persistently craving sex; wanting to cut down and unsuccessfully attempting to limit sexual activity.
  • Thinking of sex to the detriment of other activities or continually engaging in excessive sexual practices despite a desire to stop.
  • Spending considerable time in activities related to sex, such as cruising for partners or spending hours online visiting pornographic Web sites.
  • Neglecting obligations such as work, school or family in pursuit of sex.
  • Continually engaging in the sexual behavior despite negative consequences, such as broken relationships or potential health risks.
  • Escalating scope or frequency of sexual activity to achieve the desired effect, such as more frequent visits to prostitutes or more sex partners.
  • Feeling irritable when unable to engage in the desired behavior.

So, by my calculations around 75% of the male population are addicts. But I’m curious… are there many women sex addicts out there? Answers on a postcard (or the poll, preferably) – pretty please!

    A Monologue
    First day in clinic for sex addiction therapy.
    ***Read fast and very nervous like a full-on junky.

    I’m fine man, come on. No,no, no I’m not an addict. Having fun, you now. No, no, no, no, no, no… You got it wrong man. What? Nothing has started. What? Alright, alright there was… There was this girl in college, you know? She said, she said like come on and she hooked me up you know. And when you do it; it’s, it’s like “WOW!”, you know? And then you do it again, you have to do it again. And you go out and, and, and the dealers man. Everywhere. You don’t know man they’re everywhere, looking. And once you know they are there then…
    Come on man, just one more time… I’ll do that. I’ll do that. I’ll take it easy. Totally. Control man, that’s what I’m talking about here. Just today man, ‘Cause I’m not good today you know. Then, then, then it’ll, it’ll be fine…


    For the fact, I did go longer than sixteen hours without feeling aroused. We were doing full day trekking for a week. And although it was just unbelievably exhausting, and even though there was no woman around; as soon as I lay down to sleep, the feeling was just there. So, don’t tell me sex is an addiction.
